    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    I watched all of the teleport vids. Pretty cool vlog. Wow their boat was a shit box! But that made it more interesting. Heaps of bears, a few guns. Some shooting but no shot bears. Any other recommendations?

    Rudders

    I just used the term chastity strut to convey the idea. I think it might be possible to build it strong enough in this case with hefty lumber or even steel. Once again I have zero knowledge of the construction of the keel in this area. If it were my boat I would consider doing it if was found the keel structure would not be compromised. There would be a reduction in WSA too, but lift would be greater with the better rudder design. Still a heap of work, but if you like tinkering.

    Cheers on the Teleport recommendation. I saw their blog years ago and donated them a very small amount of money for their effort and had a little bit of email correspondence with them. I'm not sure if they even had a youtube channel then. But I will take a look. Much more interesting than tits in a hot place. Not that I have anything against tits, quite the contrary. My fav car mag had no hot models it. I have other magazines for that

    Can anyone reccomend an interesting sailing vlog? I understand where to find tits on the internet so am looking for something that is interesting due to content other than tits. Is this a new and revolutionary idea for a sailing vlog? Content that does not center around tits but around sailing adventure etc? Its an out there idea I know!

    Rudders

    Eric Sponbergs website has changed and I can't find the article that was linked here http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/sailboats/sailboat-heavy-helm-rudder-analysis-47906-2.html#post644565 Anyway I have my own idea which no one has seemed to mention yet. Maybe that's because of my ignorance in how silly it might be not knowing the structure of the keel. It would seem that moving the rudder stock position would be way too much effort. Moving the rudder back or straightening the angle has the benefit of allowing room for balance, plus allowing some free water flow on the leading edge rather than being stuck behind deadwood. That would allow a real foil shape to have a proper advantage, but yeah. Not worth the hassle of moving the stock and I would never consider that. So how about leaving the angle and position exactly the same, but simply removing some of the keel below the prop instead, then adding a Chastity Strut . This has the same benefit of moving the whole rudder, but without the massive amount of work. Removing stuff is easier than adding it. But I have no idea on the construction of your boat in this area. You would gain area for balance below the prop, the rudder would have free water flow on the leading edge, and it would still be supported at the bottom. Note the shitty mspaint is just to show the idea. Obviously it would be done with whole new optimized rudder planform and section shape. I just modded the old rudder in the pic for simplicity. The more keel you get rid of the better (to a certain extent obviously).

    Corsair 760

    That's what I thought and it appears the fat arse floats don't fit into the that model as well as the finer ones do. Perhaps its just the angle of the photo.

    Corsair 760

    They look perfect for mounting transom hung rudders. Personally I would prefer underslung spade rudders which will work with any transom shape. IMO 21st century trimarans should be capable of sailing on one hull. Doesn't mean the cruising sailor has to do that all the time but you can sail a fast boat slow. Cant make an inherently slow boat go fast. Seems if the boat is intended to fly the main hull regularly a fat arse would be fairly important. WSA would be lower than dragging a submarine behind, and immersed transom sterns are less frag at high speed. Is the corsair 760 really going to fly the main hull often? I'm not so sure.

    Foils

    Are you insinuating that at one time SA not been a circle jerk?
  11. Dennisail

    Foils

    "Them" is increasingly people who actually think you have something to offer and enjoy seeing your stuff. I'm just on the shitlist now for being critical. Whatever.

    All you have to do is listen to them Doug. They have not been silent on the matter.

    Corsair 760

    The floats look a lot fatter at the stern than what Ian would have designed. Comments on the different approaches here? I guess the fat one would be faster in a strong breeze and flat water, but the thinner arse would be better in many other usual conditions?

    You can't be serious? I was talking about the whole boat. Making my statement even more absurd than if it was just about the wing

    Utter BS. Most people are not "reading". They are CLICKING, which is what has been counted. Many people such as myself click to see if you have done something. The answer is you have not. We get a subscription notification, when we see you have just regurgitated a wall of text and the exact pictures you have posted thousands of times, like you did here again presumably to be funny, we scroll directly past it. No one reads it anymore. Understand? Do you honestly believe ANYONE read that wall you just reposted, or anyone wants to see the those pictures for the 987th time? YOU keep the thread on top because YOU keep posting in it with regurgitation, which is why I am unsubscribing on the next notification I get. You also put all the work you do in there just so you can claim so many views and hits etc instead of creating a new thread on a new boat when you build it. People that are interested like myself are overwhelmed with your constant bumping to keep it on top with walls of old text. It overrides any actual content that might be in there on a new model. Good luck with it. If anything ever happens I am sure to see it somewhere as you spam it so hard all over the whole internet.
